I've had the 360 elite for about a year now. I just started having problems with it. It will not read any disc I put in it. It keeps saying that it is unable to read disc. what could be the problem?

    I was recently playing a game and than all of the sudden the screen went nuts and it froze up. So I tried watching a movie on it, and the graphics were acting funny and than did the same thing. I practically went nuts because my xbox isn't even 2 years old yet! I don't want to have to buy a new one and I don't want to have to send it in, but its so aggravating to have to deal with this problem in the first place.

Your cache might be full. On your dashboard go to My Xbox, select System Settings then Memory. On whatever memory device you are using hit the Y button (not A) and select Clear System Cache. This problem is a bit like when your temporary internet files on your PC gets full to the point where it can no longer allow for any more information which causes your internet to slow down significantly or to not load any pages at all. It also works like ram. Basically if your cache is full it drags down your console and can cause other problems like not automatically signing in to your profile though you have your console set up to do so. In using this solution you will temporarily lose your gamer points but you will regain them the next time you log in to your gamer tag. Another thing you will lose is any updates you have installed but you will be prompted to redownload these. Hope this helps.

Unfortunately, either your lenses in your 360 have worn out, or the lasers in the disc reader have short circuited. Both outcomes require you to either send it in to Microsoft, or buy a new 360.

There's a time for all of them =(

Try using a Lens Cleaning CD (available at good electronic and game retailers)
If not, it may be that the lens is damaged... call (1-800-4MY-XBOX) and talk to a XBOX Representative

It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.

Well your disc is officially garbage because it's scratched beyond repair. Don't bother trying to fix your game disc. Do what I did. Go to sellitbroken.com and sell your game to them. They will give you good money for it.
